Summer School Weekly Themes

WEEK 3 – July 29th to August 3rd

African Safari Week

This week we need to get an early start as we are taking a trip to remember through some countries of amazing Africa! It’s going to be an experience of lifetime, learning about many different areas. The four age groups will have their own very elements to study – but all we will enjoy a fantastic range of tribal music, delicious food and some unforgettable art projects!

We will travel with Kokomo and his colourful friends, safari-style, with Mt. Kilimanjaro as our backdrop. We will look at natural wonders like Table Mountain and The Nile. The Pyramids will inspire us to think about ancient civilization. As we go from place to place with our passports, the children will start to build a picture of the fantastic diversity of this wonderful continent, its people and animals.
